I'm not normally a fan of fish but thought I'd give this one a try. The recipe worked perfectly, the fish seemed cooked well but it just was not to our liking at all. We really didn't like the spinach with the lentils either.
I loved the fish. I made another side dish so can't comment on the lentils but plan to make them another time.
Delicious sauce for baking fish. My brother caught yellow tail in Mexico, and it had been frozen fresh for about 3 weeks when I decided to make this meal. My father filleted the fish so that I could put the sauce on both sides and get the baking time right. We loved it with this sauce. Side dish was also good. I would definitely make this one again!
I love everything about this recipe - so fast, great for make ahead lunch just make extra lentil, and so so so yummy and healthy. Let's do more of these! I added bay leaf to the lentil, plus shredded carrot and diced tomatoes.
This was nice and something a little bit different. I used about half the called for amount of capers.
A perfect delicious and healthy weeknight meal that feels like it came from a restaurant.
